1) Most convenient
The most convenient way to find an accommodation is to look for an apartment or a B&B and share the place with other Go players. We recommend that you do that as soon as possible, because July-August is high season in Pisa, and prices tend to go up quickly as time passes.
This is a good opportunity for reasonably priced rooms. If you have not booked a room in Pisa yet, have a look here.
